Madrid is an incredible city, with a long history of hosting some of the biggest sporting events in the world. Today’s announcement begins an exciting new chapter for the Spanish Grand Prix, which will see Madrid become a benchmark for European races on the F1 calendar. I would like to thank the team at IFEMA MADRID for putting together a fantastic proposal that epitomises Formula 1’s vision to create a multi-day spectacle of sport and entertainment that maximises values for fans, whilst embracing innovation and sustainability.

President of the Community of Madrid

It is with great satisfaction that we announce Formula 1 is coming to the Community of Madrid, to a region and a capital that inspires openness and confidence within and beyond our borders. We are the main engine of Spain´s prosperity and progress.
This event, which we expect to be followed on a global scale by 70 million people, will represent an increase of more than 4,500 million euros in Madrid's GDP and the creation of 8,200 jobs. The Community of Madrid is a region with a great international projection, open, plural and competitive, and F1 will contribute to further consolidate the Madrid brand among the best in the world.

With the announcement of the Grand Prix, Madrid moves into the future and joins the exclusive group of cities hosting F1 today, placing us at the forefront of the world’s capitals in attracting major events. We know that F1 is more than a race, it is an unprecedented opportunity to drive the transformation that Madrid is undergoing, and to show the world what we are capable of. I am confident that Madrid will be up to the task, not only because we deserve a spectacle of the magnitude of F1, but also because F1 deserves a city with the energy, character, and passion of Madrid.

We highlight its sporting, cultural, social, economic, business and employment impact, generating a multiplier effect in many economic sectors such as tourism, transport, production and services. A significant increase in tax revenue is expected, benefiting the region and the country through taxes such as VAT, corporate income tax, personal income tax, excise duties and taxes. In addition to the tangible benefits, the positive impact on the international image of Madrid and Spain is highlighted. In conclusion, Formula 1 in Madrid is considered a great prize for the city and the country.
